the world is how does it treat its women. does it educate that half of the population? does it give them opportunity? when it does, you unleash the power of everyone. not just some. and i think there was great wisdom in afghanistan ratifying a constitution that recognized that. that should be part of the legacy of these last ten years. okay. thank you very much, everybody. >> so there they are, the two presidents, the afghan president, the american president, wrapping up a news conference. they made lengthy statements and answered four questions between them. most importantly, the president suggesting there is a possibility that the u.s. troop withdrawal from afghanistan could even be accelerated over the next two years, though he's not yet ready to make any final decisions. he's waiting for recommendations from his military leadership. on the same front, he's saying there is no decision made how many u.s. troops will remain in afghanistan after 2014. although he says every u.s. troop who does remain will be required to have immunity from afghan prosecution as a general condition. and we

be in jail. when they walk into the inner city areas and start talking about poor children's education, it's not because they want kids to read and write. it's because they know the government spent $600 billion a year on education and they want it and they are going to get it. there is no mechanism left except civil disobedience and having covered movements of a round the world, the revolutions in eastern europe, the palestinian uprising sort the street demonstrations that brought down slobodan milosevic, you know the tinder is there. i spent the last two years in the poorest pockets of the country from camden new jersey to the produce fields in florida, the fields of southern west virginia to the you know the tinder is there but you never know what's going to set it off. it's usually something relatively benign. an elderly woman gets for close to her home in utah or something. but i know that it's coming. will it look like occupy? will it be called occupy? you may never know. i think it's better to think of occupy not as a movement, but as a tactic. rosa parks refused to move on the bus.
